Karen, appreciate the reply. I am looking for the smallest most basic camper available that will hold it's value and is well built. And, one that doesn't require a Sherman tank to tow it. The 15A seems to fit the bill quite well for a single guy or gal. When I break tow, I want to get decent gas mileage to travel short distances back and forth.

We tow with a Hyundai Santa Fe. I will say that a V6 with a minimum of 3,500 pound tow capacity is needed even for a 15. The exception would be if you get nothing on it; no a/c, no box, no dual propane, no dual batteries, no nothing, then a vehicle with a 2,500 tow capacity might work. Again, ready to go down the road with our options, we weigh in at 2,800 pounds and a tongue weight of 350. The 15's are quite front heavy because the kitchen, fridge are in front of the axle. We have now towed the 15b over 18,000 miles and I wouldn't want to tow with less than we have. Just saying…
